Libya: Libyan opposition heads west with new victories


Libyan rebels continue to advance toward the capital Tripoli, after securing control of the strategic oil towns of Ras Lanouf, Brega and Ajdabiyah from Muammar Gaddafi’s forces.

­Meanwhile, NATO is due to meet on Sunday to discuss assuming control of the mission in Libya.

Recent reports claim that rebel troops have also taken control of the town of Bin Jawad, shortly after they entered the crucial oil port of Ras-Lanouf, located 660 km (410 miles) from Tripoli.

In the latest advance marking an important turnaround in the military conflict, the rebels have managed to secure such key strategic positions as the city of Ajdabiyah, the Marsa-el-Brega oil seaport and the town of Uqayla. This headway puts the rebels back in control of the cities they had lost in the last week.
